What's not to like about a gourmet coffee shop where a regular cup is under a buck? The breakfast and lunch fare at Kansas City Cupcake Co. Cafe in the historic Strawberry Hill neighborhood is hearty enough to bring in construction and white-collar workers, and politicos from the nearby city hall. Greg Gant, a retired federal law enforcement agent, manager the eclectic cafe, near the heart of downtown. He works along the smartest and best baker he knows, his wife Celeste. Pair that with some of the tastiest cupcakes in all of Kansas City and you have a match made in heaven!
